5 o'clock class - preliminary education contemporary dance
5 o'clock class
Coordinator: Jocelyn Bergland
5 o’clock class has been set up specially for children with a talent for dance. You can take part if you aspire to a career as dancer, teacher or choreographer and develop your dance skills while attending regular school. The goal of the 5 o’clock class is to train you to meet the audition requirements of the HBO vocational dance study programme.
The curriculum is very diverse. Not only will you receive training in the field of modern dance, jazz dance, urban dance and classical ballet, but also in acting and singing. Intensive personal schooling is an integral part of the programme as well as coaching pupils to create their own dance. During the lesson programme, from September thru June, you train for several hours each day. The lessons are scheduled at the end of the afternoon and early evening so that during the day you can work or attend school. Classes are held in Amsterdam – Zuidoost and the Theaterschool on the Jodenbreestraat.
Teachers of the 5 o’clock programme hail mainly from the professional field and the Theaterschool’s HBO Vocational Dance study programmes, among them Eddi de Bie, Peter Koppens, Percy Kruythoff, Rahana Oemed, Dian IJkhout, Faizah Grootens, John Agesilas.
